So we are not very good at maintaining our blog. For that we are really sorry! We are going to do better because we want you to know all the exciting things that are happening at Sari Bari.
Our staff began inviting women for interviews at Sari Bari. They went into new areas to invite women who had not yet heard of Sari Bari or the opportunity for new work and a new life. We had a tremendous response!!
We had some amazing guests and interns help us out this month. Special thanks to Rosa, Raji, Amey, Leia, Chris, Phileena, Amanda, and Chad!
We had 12 new women start training in August. They are doing well. We are so excited. This almost doubles the number of ladies that we have working at the Primary Production Unit. Pushing our total numbers to over 30 women who now have freedom
We had another guest this month. Special thanks to Madri from South Africa for her help, encouragement and wonderful gifts for the ladies. Thanks to Madri’s friends and family for the notes and gifts and for sending Madri to us!
Wow–still more good news! 5 more ladies started at Sari Bari on September 1. We have totally run out of space and are desperately searching for a bigger place. We are also actively searching in a second red light area to open a second production unit…hoping for the door to open for us on this one!
We are working to get the website to a new level so you can purchase online. It may not happen before Christmas due to production constraints but there will definitely be an opportunity to buy blankets and bags in time for Christmas. If you are on our e-mail list, you will receive an e-mail as soon as the next shipment is in the states and ready for distribution (including instructions about how to order). If you do not already receive Sari Bari e-mail notices, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list. Also, be sure to add email@example.com to your e-mail mailbox so it doesn’t get filtered to your junk mail.
